At times we are our own worst enemy
Snared in traps, not set for you or me
Yet everywhere we step, we seem to stumble upon
A minefield unearthed by things we’ve done wrong

What causes the earth to react to us this way
To the things we do or the things we say
Does our tone need a key change?
Do our actions present… the Love of Christ inside our hearts?

Or are our actions bent

On gaining the respect
Given freely each day
But to others around us
Who don’t come across this way

Do our actions stem from living
In times where some resent
Affirmations given to those
With money to be spent

And why do we care to have
Accolades from the earth?
When not a soul here knows the value
God sees in our worth

So, let’s relax, let down our guard
Step back and assess
How our own words and actions
Got us into this mess

Let’s change our tone, our body language
With what we try to convey
Tiptoe out of the minefield
Getting out of our own way
